Good Morning BET, jkr, Christine, Janet and all....

This Dad is incredible. His behavior makes it a delight to see. Mom does know how lucky she is!
But we are doubly lucky with the two of them. Seeing him lying next to her was such a surprise/pleasure/delight.
Affection is highly visible.

4:35 pm Calgary time

I just checked the nest and it looks like something is around the neck and shoulder area of one of the osprey. I do not know who it is.

I don't like it either. I have not seen both on the nest since then so I guess we will have to wait. I wonder what it could be. It is too big for fishing line.

Hi Christine,

OK, it's good now! Yeah! I saw Mom flying in and then the other but there is nothing around the neck/shoulders any longer (I believe). Whew......

Hi Carolyn,

Thank goodness! I had to go and still have not seen both of them. Thank you.

Carolyn I was watching and caught the images of the time you just commented on.

Nest was unoccupied - except by the eggs. Mom flew in. Note the cupped position of her talons and the spread between the feet. She landed almost on the eggs, all prepared to cup them.

Dad was practically on her tail feathers with another stick. Although he landed on the near side of the nest where he has frequently placed sticks in his wall, this time he walked around and placed it on the river side.

You can see that what ever that scary thing that was draped over her neck is gone. Thank heavens.
